We have transferred our Mach3 program to a different computer and now our CNC is not communicating with the computer that we have transferred the software to.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

When you install an application like Mach3, you have to ensure that the corresponding drivers are also installed. For Mach3 it's not enough to simply copy the software. I believe you have to install the drivers for ports and machine recognition. Therefore, the full setup needs to be launched again to install the missing modules.

And just as I though, the Mach3 installs the drivers for the Parallel Port, as specified in the manual.
